I haven’t done a fashion Friday in ages, so I’m excited to share a new look with you all!

In case you missed it too, I did a guest post for Zoe Alexander about 5 styling tips for someone with a disability (or anyone really). You can find a link to that article here.

So, let’s get into this week’s look.

Outfit details:

Scarf from unknown
Jumper from Dotti
Skirt from Valleygirl
Shoes from Nine West
Bag from unknown
Jewellery from Lovisa

On Sunday I had high tea at Epicurean, so it was a fantastic excuse to get dressed up! Finding outfits in winter is always a struggle and this new fluffy jumper from Dotti is one of my new favourites, as it’s warm and comfortable. To dress it up I teamed it with this skirt from Valleygirl and new shoes from Nine West, which I absolutely love too because as I have small feet, it’s hard to fit “adult shoes” that fit.

The pops of pinks were chosen because I wanted to try out my new Morphe eyeshadow palette (review is below). Pops of colour are also great in winter when you want to brighten up an outfit and a scarf adds that extra layer of warmth.

Makeup details:

Face: Shape Tape Matte Foundation, Shape Tape Concealer and blush from Tarte
Eyes: Morphe eyeshadow palette “39S – Such a Gem”, Maybelline HyperSharp Wing Liquid Liner, Model Rock false eyelashes
Lips: Revlon ColorStay Lipliner “Blush” and Mac lipstick “Hot Gossip”

For those who follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that my go-to face products all come from Tarte. Their foundation and concealer offer amazing coverage! The Model Rock eyelashes are also fantastic if you get their “Pick ‘n’ Mix” deal as they work out a lot cheaper per pair then saying buying a pair from Priceline.

The most exciting thing this week was trying out my new Morphe eyeshadow palette! I ordered this palette, “39S – Such a Gem”, and “39A – Dare to Create” a few weeks ago when they had a 20% off sale and I’ve been dying to try them ever since. I did a test run on Saturday night and wow the pigmentation is amazing! I’ve never had a palette that is as pigmented as this one. The photo, unfortunately, doesn’t do the colours justice. My only concern would be that Mum (who does my makeup) said it didn’t blend as easily as some of my other palettes (the Chi Chi eyeshadow palettes are the ones I normally use) but I don’t use an eyeshadow base/primer, so maybe investing in one of these might help. Mum also prefers to use the eyeshadow sponges over brushes (which I use) so maybe this didn’t help either. If you have any tips and tricks on how to fix this problem, let me know in the comments below.

Hope you enjoyed these looks!

In this week's edition of Fashion Friday, I outline the details of my outfit that I wore to high tea, featuring a black skirt and pink accessories.
